Default rip ray bradbury

Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451, dead at 91 - The Globe and Mail

so many great quotes to remember...

Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me.After the explosion, I spent the rest of the day putting the pieces together.
If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.
Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things.

Can't believe i missed this for the Headlines thread...451 was mandatory highschool reading when i grew up...was shocked to look back and discover it was written in 1953...truly a timeless masterpiece
My favourite (from him) will always be Something Wicked This Way Comes

I have read
Something Wicked this way comes and 451. Both great novels.
I will be picking up the martian chronicles and the illustrated man because i am told his best work was in his short stories.

He will be remembered forever.
